Gwangju Football Stadium, where professional soccer team Gwangju FC hosted Jeonbuk Hyundai in the 31st round of the K League 1 last month. A full house of supporters hoping for an 11-match unbeaten streak.

Gwangju FC, a professional soccer team that has set a record of 10 consecutive unbeaten matches, has secured a spot in the Final A and is being loved by citizens.

Gwangju FC will challenge the ‘victory record against former clubs' in the match against Gangwon FC on the 8th, and the fans' enthusiasm is so high that ‘dark ticket transactions (?) for the first time in 21 years' have been carried out.

According to Gwangju FC, Gwangju will play the final regular season match of the 33rd round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at 3 p.m. against Gangwon FC at the Gwangju Football Stadium.

Currently, Gwangju is in third place in the league and has already qualified for the Final A. It's the first time in three years.

Gwangju FC set a record of 10 consecutive matches without a defeat with a hard-fought victory over FC Seoul on Sept. 17.

Professional soccer team Gwangju FC lost 1-0 to Jeonbuk Hyundai 1-0 in the 31st round of the K League 1 at Gwangju Football Stadium on March 24, ending their 11-match unbeaten streak. Players say goodbye to their supporters after the game.

The team's winning streak came to an end with an unfortunate defeat against Jeonbuk on September 24, but the team won again against Jeju on September 1 and has become extremely popular with fans.

In particular, if Gwangju wins the match against Gangwon on the same day, Gwangju will earn the title of ‘victory against former club'. This is a first for Gwangju in the first division and has not been accomplished by any of the 12 teams in the K League 1 this season.

Gangwon FC, on the other hand, has clinched a spot in Final B but still needs to win against Gwangju to advance to the final round.

The six Final A and six Final B clubs will each play a final five-game round of matches, with the results determining whether they qualify for the Champions League or are relegated to K League 2.

Supporters of professional soccer Gwangju FC cheer vigorously during the K League 1 31st round match against Jeonbuk Hyundai at Gwangju Football Stadium on Sept. 24.

Under such circumstances, the advance ticket lines for the Gwangju FC-Gangwon FC match were huge.

Ticketing for the home game against Jeonbuk, which opened on the 19th, sold out of W seats in 15 minutes and all seats in three hours.

Gwangju even opened a second round of tickets, opening C1, C2, C5, and C6 after completing a safety diagnostic inspection of the Gwangju Football Stadium's C section (away seats) and opening D1, D2, and D3 as home team seats.

Even during the secondary ticketing, there were many posts on online secondary market platforms saying, ‘Gwangju FC tickets for sale' or ‘buy good seats'.

A seller who said, “I was unable to attend due to an urgent matter” sold three W seats in an instant, and side-by-side seats are being traded for a laugh.

Since this is Gwangju FC's last home game, it was easy to find posts saying that they were looking for tickets regardless of price.

Fan goods such as Gwangju players' jerseys, FC autographed balls, and FC tumblers are also being traded.

A Gwangju FC supporter said, “This is the first time since the creation of Gwangju FC Supporters that I know of a black market for tickets.” “The history of black market tickets in the Gwangju area is the first since the 2002 World Cup in South Korea against Spain. I hope Gwangju FC and Gangwon FC will have a good match as the fans continue to support them.” 스포츠토토맨
